Just to play devils advocate here,you say that hearing the same songs either by Weir or anyone is well monotonous.I agree if you the listener does it as a semi profession/hobby.Me I'm
thinking of those different crowds in entirely different
countries who for the most part have 0 idea what the Dead are
about and have no idea of any repetition going on.Me I personally can't afford the coin for something like that so I go back to the original and vol 2 and that's it as far as I go w/ E72.I still think the Lycem show w/ it's unbelievable set list wins out.

LW, don't know if you know but the Lyceum show is available at dead.net as a single-show purchase. I have and sounds fantastic but 72 discs from that late-era tour is more than I would want.

Enjoy,

Thanks.I didn't know and will check it out.Another great sounding show was Pembrook Pines and not the cd released abridged version.The WOS clarity was amazing and for me a stand out sonicly.

Even in this era of relatively repetitive shows (not like the later period, where they could do 5 nights with no repeated songs !), there is variety night to night . Most bands , to this day, have the same set list for a whole tour , or more . It is only because of our having all these show available that the repetition of certain songs, or routines (Pig's raps) become a slight irritant . One reason i deliberately mix up the eras , for my Dead listening, these boxes aside .
